The B17 Picadilly Lilly is an "F" model, yet throughout the series, combat footage of "G" model B17s are cut into the scenes. The main difference between the models is that the G models feature a "chin" turret under the nose of the plane. See more »

general comments (first season)
10 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently had a chance to see this show again after many years. I thought that it was a great show before, and I feel the same way now (I refer to the Robert Lansing/season one show -- I agree completely with the comments that head this list).

Robert Lansing, and the writers, show how leadership happens, when the commander doesn't have the option of starting over with someone else. He knows that his unit is only as strong as the weakest member, and he uses his knowledge and his leadership ability to get his men to do their best, even when it may cost him personal popularity.

The combat scenes are well done, but so are the scenes when the airmen are back at the base, or off duty, in wartime England, socializing with the civilians before risking their lives on another day time bombing run deep into Germany.
